About InspecTile

Todd Duhe has worked in the ceramic tile and stone industry for over 30 years. Mr. Duhe is an active member of the National Tile Contractors Association and is a Recognized Industry Consultant of the NTCA. Through his association contacts and industry professionals, Todd keeps up with this constantly changing industry.

The tile industry has changed more in the last 5 years than the last 50. Todd has traveled the country making contacts with manufacturers and attending hands on classes for new products. Every month new products are introduced, including the necessary technical information needed for their proper uses. Todd also consults with industry leaders and consultants nationwide.

Unlike some consultants that have a sales or marketing background, Mr. Duhe takes a hands on approach. Having run a successful contracting business for over 30 years, he knows how to get dirty. Todd’s #1 question to any inspector is “How can you successfully dissect a job if you have never properly assembled one?” There are many facets of the tile trade that cannot be learned by books and videos.
